Energy & Environment

APS considers a technically sound national energy policy (Statement 00.3), rooted in reducing America's dependency on fossil fuels and foreign sources of energy, essential to maintaining a robust economy and a healthy environment (Statement 05.3). APS views nuclear energy as a significant option for reducing pollution while meeting the world's expanding energy needs (Statement 93.7). Renewable sources of energy such as solar & wind, among others, need to be researched and developed further to help meet the world demand for energy. The Society urges continued and diversified investments in energy research and development, as well as policies that promote efficiency and innovation in the energy sector.
